Description: We have owned and operated 294 cafe & bistro, we then moved to 616 Bury rd and opened as The Bank café, bar & grill. We traded there for 2 and a half years growing into a more high end casual eatery. Our reputation has grown from strength to strength and we have remained in the top 3 restaurants in Bolton during this time. We have now moved into the town centre in the new Vaults dining area of The Market Place shopping centre. We hope to be here for a long time to come.

Went here for Dinner on a Thursday night, me my partner and my 2 children aged 8&9. It took us a while to be seated even though there wasn't anyone else waiting. Once seated it took almost 10 minutes to get any drinks and the children had been promised crayons for their colour sheets but this took as long to arrive as the drinks. Once we finally got our drinks we then waited a further 5 minutes to be able to order our food. With not much choice for both ourselves and the children we asked for the kids meals first as they were hungry. The children enjoyed their food but was not told the 'pizza' was actually more like a Calzone and luckily it wasn't my autistic child who ordered this as I am not sure he would have been pleased. The children had finished their meals before we had even got ours!. Once we finally got our meals we were sadly rather disappointed, I had ordered the Vault burger which can only be described as a fair ground burger at best. It was not very nice not much taste and the onions were not cooked well and far too big. My partner ordered the fish and chips and the fish looked more well done than my burger! very bland tasteless and to us a whole waste of money. We tried this for a change but can safely say we wont visit here again.

Called for lunch one Saturday with the family to see if it had improved since the refurbishment. Service was very slow and the food for the price wasn’t excellent. Kids meals were better than ours and good value for the money.
shame really as this is what the market hall needed.

Visited this afternoon on Good Friday, the new place has taken shape after the flood from upstairs (appalling that Moorgarth have avoided responsibility), had steak and chicken combo which was the tastiest I have had for a long time followed by Aron’s gin cocktails. Great to see they have continued from the success of their Bury Road restaurant and would highly recommend. The staff are a credit and the attention to detail is exceptional. Well done.
